Vicodin (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Pain: Basically, Vicodin worked very very well for me when I got the two right wisdom teeth pulled. HOWEVER, when I got the left two pulled about a year later, and was on Vicodin, the pain was still so horrid that I couldn't sleep and it was all I could do, not to cry.

Vicodin (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Pain: For acute tooth pain - Vicodin is the drug of choice. After having my wisdom teeth taken out, it worked great for my pain. I only had a popsicle afterwards and did not experience any nausea.

Vicodin (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Pain: I have had serious lower back issues and fusion. Vicodin has been a life saver. I use it after surgeries and then try to use it as sparingly as possible. I have used it off and on for the past 5 years with no problems. I was only taking 3 a week to play golf before last surgery but now trying to take 1/2 to 1 to control pain after exercise or sleeping. Pain in legs also needs Lyrica. Scared of addiction or would be taking more. Also worried that it will stop working. So far so good.

Vicodin (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Pain: Had lower back surgery in 2000ish. Was taking 750mg before and after surgery. Help with dealing with pain and got me back to work as a roofer. Recently my neck had been giving me problems an a MRI revealed disc herniations, bulging disc, degenerative disc disease, flattening of my left spinal cord and a hamangioma, with pain and numbness in my left arm/hand, neck. I've been treating with 500mg vicodin & 15mg Ms-Contin. Brings pain level down to a tolerable level but as always, somedays are better than others.

Vicodin (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Pain: This medication does not work for me. I have fibromyalgia and my doctor just prescribed me 7.5/500s. I can take only up to 2 per day. I've already taken both, and its not even noon yet. And it didn't make a dent in my pain. Very disappointed.

Vicodin (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Pain: I used this for spinal stenosis and it never really worked for me. I took the 5/500 and then I tried 10/325 and neither did anything.

Vicodin (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Pain: I have used this after my surgery and I give it a 10/10 even though I was only about 14^ this worked very well. My mom would give me the medicine whenever the time it was needed to be given (scheduled). I am currently 16 and The surgery I have received was replacing dieing bone cartilage with live ones from another part of the bone. It was painful/especially during the recovery.

Vicodin (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Pain: I've taken Vicodin for 12 years for severe migraines and endometriosis and back and neck pain from a car accident. I take 3 per day and it allows me to hold a full time job, without it I don't function due to pain or stand straight even. Prior to that I was fired from jobs due to constant calling in due to pain from all my problems. I am not addicted at only 3 per day but if people are pain-free they will be happier, hold full time jobs, interact with spouse via saving their marriage, also interacting with their children via having better well rounded kids who have a loving outgoing parent or parents, many benefits to this pill. I claim it to be a MIRACLE pill. Doctors have tried me on everything known to man, this is only thing that works.

Vicodin (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Pain: Doctor gave me prescription for Vicodin (5-500: hydrocodone/acetaphenamin) post shoulder surgery: 1 every 4-6 hrs. It blocked the pain HOWEVER within 12 hours made me dizzy and gave me cold sweats and nausea; couldn't stand up or walk without help. Switched to Ultram/tramadol 50mg 1 every 6 hours (which worked fine - no side effects).

Vicodin (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Pain: Diagnosed with Carpel Tunnel Syndrome, my physician prescribed two Vicodin a day for pain relief. For the first couple of days I was drowsy after the noon tablet but now my body seems to have acclimated itself to the drug and I'm no longer drowsy, and I'm reasonably pain free. It isn't perfect, but I gave it an eight out of a possible ten! I don't expect to be on it long enough to worry about addiction.

Vicodin (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Pain: Took Vicodin for pain because I broke my lower leg and upper leg in a wreck and also my eye bone was broken. The pain goes away and the arthritis pain goes away for 4 to 5 hours.

Review by Back pain relief:

Vicodin (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Pain: Suffered from degenerative disc disease for 3 years before finally having a fusion. Vicodin was the only medication that could make a dent in my pain. Broke pills in half and never took more than 2-3 pills per day, no matter what, or tolerance develops. Need to take a stool softener or live with constant rectal bleeding and clogged toilets. The drug also allowed me to maintain or improve mentally in order to function in a demanding job. This is separate than the pain relief. Another interesting side effect is an increase in libido at least for males. The combination of Vicodin and Viagra worked great for me to achieve erection. Also, the Vicodin effect for me mentally was identical to that of having an orgasm.

Vicodin (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Pain: I started taking this after my knee surgery, I found it to be be great. My recovery time was fast. I had no pain and lot's of energy. It started with 3 or 4 pills a day then after that it got to be 5 or 6 a day. I then had foot surgery. I had to take more for the pain to go away. This went on for 5 years. By the time I got help I was taking 20 to 25 pills A DAY. I now know that God is watching over me because if he wasn't I wouldn't be here now. I am now off of all pain killers but it took a lot of hard work. I'm letting you know this because it creeps up on you before you even know it. Vicodin may help you at first and you may be able to control it. I thought I could. I'm just asking you please be careful with this medicine.

Vicodin (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Pain: I've been taking Hydrocodone APAP 5-500 for 2 months now. It works for me. I only take one tablet at night to help me sleep. I was operated on cubital tunnel syndrome. It helped me a lot.

Vicodin (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Pain: I am a 70 year old woman. I have spinal stenosis. Each day I wake up thinking I won't need to take Vicodin today, but I do. I take 2 when the pain starts and it always takes the pain away. If I wait too long to see if the "PAIN WILL GET BETTER BY ITSELF" I'm only fooling myself. It never gets better by itself! My doctor tells me not to worry about addiction, that he knows how often I take it and he keeps track. So I let him do it.

Vicodin (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Pain: I am not really impressed with the pain control I receive from Vicodin. I have a long history of chronic pain related to my disease Lupus. I have had Lupus for 20 years. As I get older the pain seems to get harder to deal with. Fortunately, I am still able to work and function on a daily basis. I am fully aware of all of the side effects, for me the benefit almost always outweighs the risks. I don't understand why doctors are so afraid to give you something different that may actually work better for me. They are so concerned with addiction. Vicodin is addictive!!! I don't understand their rationalle.

Vicodin (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Pain: I have a history of kidney stones (very painful) and Vicodin is the pain killer of choice. Tylenol 3 is very similar. My doctor has alternated between them. When Vicodin doesn't work (about 10% of the time) I have to go to the emergency room for a Morphine injection.

Vicodin (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Pain: Use this for chronic cluster headache. Only medication that provides lessening of severe head pain. Not enough research has been done with the use of Vicodin ES for chronic cluster headache pain.

Vicodin (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Pain: Vicodin works very well, I take it 5-6 times a day for my pain with lupus. I wouldn't change my Vicodin for anything.

Vicodin (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Pain: I use Vicodin when I'm in pain. It only helps me for 2 to 3 days then after that nothing seems to help with pain. I've had surgery on my wrist and I am going to have surgery again soon. I fear that I am going to get addicted to it because my dad is addicted to it and I don't want it to happen to me. I need to tell my doctor and ask him what else would help with pain.

Vicodin (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Pain: Post op foot pain. Not effective to address pain. Mild side effects: dry mouth, skin feels charged and I am unable to stay asleep due to weird dreams that seem to just "pop" into my head. First day on medicine, I'll call Doctor tomorrow hope he will give me something different.

Vicodin (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Pain: This is a great drug and really makes me feel better as a result of chronic back pain that radiates into my legs and abdomen. I only take 1 to 2 pills a week to get some relief.

Vicodin (acetaminophen / hydrocodone) for Pain: Occasionally I take this for my migraines when I run out of my Midrin. I also have severe neck pain of unknown cause. Works very well, but I'm careful not to take it all the time because I know it is addictive.
